Their story is so sad. They both think they have no one left in their lives other than Ellone - yet, that's not true. They're father and son, yet neither of them ever know it.(Except for when Ellone tells Laguna).

Based on the dialogue from the Ragnarock, I think Ellone told Laguna about it when they were up on the space station. The vague dialogue from Lagna, Kiros, and Ward hinted that Laguna planned on telling Squall the truth after the final battle.

I don't think they ever did. As far as I remember from the last time I played through it, they finally met but neither one of them had a clue that they were related. If they did, Squall would probably be thinking, "Dear God, this moron's my dad?" No offense to Laguna fans! I think he's pretty cool too. As much as Squall calls him a moron in his own mind, I can imagine that being the first thing he'd think of.

The game drops EXTREMELY subtle hints throughout, but at the end the only thing keeping it ambiguous is Laguna doesn't spit it out. Here's some examples in-game:

1. The Moombas in D-District Prison mistook Squall for Laguna. Moombas identify people by the taste of their blood, and one Moomba tasted Squall's blood after he was tortured. As it turns out, this same Moomba had tasted Laguna's blood in the past. So, the fact that their blood tastes the same indicates some sort of relation.

2. Then there's the fact that Squall was really close to Ellone. All of the orphaned children called her 'Sis', but Squall took her departure extremely hard. All of this linked to the fact that Raine had a baby before she died. Ellone was Raine's adopted daughter, so...

3. During the mind-travel, Squall ALWAYS experiences the past through Laguna. Not Kiros or Ward. All of the other characters experienced Kiros and Ward's point of view interchangeably, but Squall is the only one that's consistent with one person. That's pretty telling.

4. And of course, the dialogue on the Ragnarok before you raid Lunatic Pandora. If you speak to Laguna, Kiros, and Ward, this is what they will say to Squall:

Ward: "..."
Kiros: "Ward says...[Good thing you don't look like your father.]"

Kiros: "You look very much like your mother."

Laguna: "Let's talk when it's all done. I have a lot to tell you... Well, if you don't want to hear it, I'll understand."

So...yeah. The game never comes out and says it directly, but the implications of Laguna being Squall's father are there.

Ironically, during my initial playthrough I didn't connect any dots until the dialogue on the Ragnarok, lol.

I cannot say you were there whenever I needed you.
I cannot say that you never did me any wrong.
Nor can I say that we always got along.
I can say that you always loved me.
I can say that you tried your best, and it showed.
I will say that I could not have asked for a better person,
To be my one and only father.

No, it's not from a song. It's actually an epitaph dedicated to a father that passed away...
